I would love to see Leon Goretzka and Max Meyer sign this summer for Liverpool - Tell me Eds I am dreaming? Do you rate them both.

KingCarlos

{Ed001's Note - not seen a lot of Goretzka or Meyer to be honest. Seen the odd game that they have played but neither stood out. I don't know of either being likely to join us, Schalke would like to hold onto them, but are not in a position to refuse huge offers. I would not be surprised to see one move to Bayern in the summer.}


1.) 23 Apr 2017 13:12:00
Arsenal have a strong interest in Goretzka while Spurs have looked at Meyer in the past.


2.) 23 Apr 2017 13:43:34
Watched Schalke thursday wasnt impressed but nasticic was good.


 

 

15 Apr 2017 06:11:58
Sorry to bother the Eds again but LFC was linked with Chelsea's Dominic Solanke - Has there been any movement on signing him or has the interest gone? Thanks KingCarlos.

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Solanke from Fiorentina. Unless something has happened in the past few day, Liverpool has not spoken to Chelsea regarding the player.}


1.) 15 Apr 2017 11:46:04
Thanks Ed002 - I was a little surprised that LFC showed interest.

{Ed002's Note - I am aware that there have been several enquiries and that he has spoken with Celtic and with Fiorentina. He is a decent player and much is expected of him but his "representative" made financial demands were well beyond Chelsea. If Liverpool want to talk with him I know that Chelsea would give their permission if approached.}


 

 

14 Apr 2017 12:53:24
I understand that several Premiership clubs are after Sakho and LFC are likely to get a decent fee for him - does this stack up with the EDs? Also have Liverpool shown an interest in Nathan Ake as well - very recently?

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - There are a couple of sides interested in Sakho (Palace and Soton). Liverpool has not asked about Ake.}


1.) 14 Apr 2017 16:52:15
Could a swap deal be done for Sakho and VVD?


2.) 14 Apr 2017 16:53:10
I like Ake, he's a really good defender and can play left back or centre back easily. Would be a smart bit of business if we went for him.


3.) 14 Apr 2017 19:19:46
Probably get downvotes for this, but if Sakho was to be used as "leverage" for another player I would really hope it would be Zaha. I know he didn't have the best time at United, but I just feel he was in a similar boat to Markovic in that he showed fantastic potential but United bought him too soon before he was properly developed. He has progressed very well at Palace this season and would bring some much needed pace and power to our side.


4.) 14 Apr 2017 19:49:56
Zaha = average.


5.) 14 Apr 2017 23:04:52
Harsh to call Zaha average. He has had a great season in a very poor team. Last season I would've completely agreed. He now offers a genuine threat in behind, running at the opposition, holding the ball up, putting dangerous crosses in etc. His improvement has been astonishing to be quite honest. He has something like 6 goals and 12 assists in a team fighting relegation.

However he is not as good as Mane and plays the exact same position. Not to mention this is his first good season. He needs to prove he can maintain this level. You couldn't even argue he is cover when Mane is at the AFCON, because Zaha will also be at the tournament!

If we are going to try and nab a centre back in part of a swap deal for Sakho, we would be better off with Jack Stephens though. He is better than VVD.


6.) 15 Apr 2017 07:45:05
Spot on MK buying Zaha doesn't solve any current challenges.


7.) 15 Apr 2017 10:24:00
I don't think palace are that poor a team . They have a decent squad it was just being managed by a poor manager in Pardew. Fat head has gone in and done what he does and made them hard to beat. For me palace should be around 10-12th with squad they have.

Zaha has looked more impressive past few games but I am not sure he is the answer for us he is quick and athletic but he does go missing in a lot of games . I don't think he can be judged on his time at the mancs as there was a lot of unrest as whisky nose signed him but never managed him so I think Zaha was on a hiding to nothing with LVG plus they spent big on other players limiting his game time.

If Klopp wants him and a deal can be done it could be a great signing with good coaching and if he clicks with us but I will leave that to the scouts and people who know more than me to decide.


8.) 18 Apr 2017 19:46:04
Zaha has been average his whole PL career and playing a series of good games lately will NEVER change that. Let's see him do it for 2 more years and we will discuss at that time.


 

 

03 Jan 2017 09:18:41
I have heard that Newcastle Utd and West Brom are interested in Sakho, Benfica are interested in Ilori and the interest in Lucas is firming up in both Italy and Spain with Spain being the likely destination.

KingCarlos

 

 

19 Nov 2016 09:57:18
I heard that PSG will be bidding for Sakho in January.

KingCarlos

1.) 19 Nov 2016 11:35:13
PSG?
The club he fell out with before us?
The club who could afford pretty much any defender in the world?

Bid away boys 😂.

Happy to see that Lovren has signed an extension and I believe he will become a better CB over the next 4 years.

KingCarlos

1.) 28 Apr 2017 12:14:24
I think Moreno really deserves one too, I believe he will become a better player over the next 10 years.


2.) 28 Apr 2017 12:19:18
I really hope this does not mean that Klopp will stick with what he has at CB for next season. We desperately need a decent partner for Matip or its another 50 league goals we will be conceding next season.


3.) 28 Apr 2017 12:25:48
you guys do not remember Mark Wright - this is like a repeat great world cup . move to Liverpool have a crap couple of season's and then become an excellent asset to the club - here's hoping history repeats itself and mind you VVD is not the answer.


4.) 28 Apr 2017 12:29:43
Just need to give a new contract to mignolet now and we will be all set for next season, maybe bring konchesky back in the summer as back up.


5.) 28 Apr 2017 12:30:53
It suggests we're not looking at CBs this summer which is a concern but it's actually great news for Gomez. It means Klopp's happy with his options with Lovren and Matip first choice and Gomez as the understudy. If it works out it means Gomez is seen as the long term solution to our issues at CB.


6.) 28 Apr 2017 12:31:32
This really does not make much sense to me, unless it's to prop up his value in case of a sale in the summer, which I doubt. Does Klopp rate him so highly that he wants him around for another 4 years until he's 31? Complete mystery to me. If he's going to persist with his four CBs of Matip, Lovren, Klavan and Gomez, then I don't expect much improvement in letting goals in.


7.) 28 Apr 2017 12:31:45
If klopp believes we don't need a CB then he needs sacking.


8.) 28 Apr 2017 12:37:52
Over the next 10 years? LOL
He is 28 this summer mate. Do your research. We have already seen the best of Lovren, and it simply is not good enough to warrant being a regular first team player. If no quality CB is signed this summer, next season is going to be another bummer.


9.) 28 Apr 2017 14:00:30
Maybe klopp has realized he needs to tweak the defensive system for better results. Lovren has shown time and again that he can be a top cb, remember how he had the best striker in the league, lukaku, in his pocket in the derby which prompted the Ed to call it a 'masterclass in handling lukaku' or something on those lines. Maybe a more accomplished and composed player like Godin can sort him out but how many Godins out there are lining up to sign for us? I think We need to address our approach to defense and our strategy as a priority and work on individual technique. I hope klopp can fix that.


10.) 28 Apr 2017 14:30:01
Indian buzzer, hx was talking about Moreno and I believe he was being sarcastic.


11.) 28 Apr 2017 18:08:44
VVD may not be the answer, but of a truth, there is a question.


12.) 28 Apr 2017 22:20:52
I think he was speaking about Moreno over the next 10 years not Lovren.


13.) 28 Apr 2017 22:45:36
Maybe Klavan is the player to go. Maybe Klopp likes both Matip and Lovren but due to their injury concerns he feels he needs another quality CB anyway. People pronouncing doom and gloom on guesswork! I've got an idea, why not wait until the window is shut, never mind open before ranting and raving?

I too would like a quality CB but none of us really know what will happen. There's areas all over the pitch that could be strengthened BUT it depends on who's available, who'll come and who we can afford. I personally don't care as long as A. They want to wear the shirt with pride and B. They improve the first team and C.


14.) 29 Apr 2017 09:58:23
I think has seen that we need more continuity in the CB position instead of bringing on someone else who will have to adapt. Hopefully, Lovren can step up now and take responsibility.


 

 

17 Aug 2016 12:15:22
Does anyone know what the situation with Sakho is. He does not appear to be training with the first team.

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}


1.) 17 Aug 2016 12:32:33
He's in the dog house.
Probably the transfer list as well.


2.) 17 Aug 2016 12:34:07
He's injured.


3.) 17 Aug 2016 15:14:33
Injured and in the dog house, then.


 

 

16 Jul 2016 23:53:51
Wisdom off to Blackburn Rovers for a season on loan, hope the big fella gets some game time.

KingCarlos

1.) 17 Jul 2016 00:14:52
So do I. We have to stop messing about our young players with loans where they barely play.

Yesil, Ilori, Wisdom etc had such ill thought out loan deals last season. Yesil barely got off the bench, Ilori didn't get off the bench and Wisdom was canned for being under 7ft.

If we are to loan out our young lads in future, they need to go to teams who will utilise them, develop them, and play a positive brand of football.


2.) 17 Jul 2016 00:41:53
Paul Pogba. to Man U for £105 million possibly
Marko Grujic . to Liverpool for £5 million definite

Pogba. age 23
Grujic. age 20

Both attacking midfielders.


Let's see who made the best signing.
My money's on Grujic.


3.) 17 Jul 2016 00:51:40
Grujic and Pogba are very similar players, but comparisons are unnecessary.

I don't care who is the better signing though. Pogba can be the best PLAYER in the league next season for all I care. I just hope Grujic contributes towards us being the best TEAM in the league.

Whatever way you dress it up, Pogba is a cracking signing by the way. And if Stones is worth £50m then Pogba at £105m is relatively a bargain!


4.) 17 Jul 2016 01:24:03
Why would clubs loan in Ilori, Yesil or Wisdom if they didn't think they can challenge their way into first team? i rather think we view too many of the younger players at LFC with red-tinted glasses.

Yesil missed the best part of 2 years with an injury and probably was way off the pace. Ilori has not even played a single minute at LFC despite being here for over 3 years. I think there are more than enough information to suggest that they simply weren't good enough.

Andre Wisdom is 23 now and a loan for him makes absolutely no sense. LFC don't feel he is good enough now to play for them, then there simply isn't any need to send him on loan, but rather sell him.


5.) 17 Jul 2016 05:10:51
Ilori has played for the first team. It was against Exeter in the cup last season.


6.) 17 Jul 2016 05:19:29
why liverpool fans want to always make absurd comparisons of their signings with other teams is beyond me, grujic with pogba, yeah sure let's compare a kid out of serbian league with a player who is a mainstay for serie A champions and starter for french national team. Another such comparison comes to mind remember a guy called cristiano ronaldo who was not good enough to lace Anthony Le Tallec's boot if liverpool fans were to be believed, that worked out well didn't it.


7.) 17 Jul 2016 10:40:20
Posts comparing grujic to pogba after a friendly are a bit embarrassing for me really. but each to his own I suppose.


8.) 17 Jul 2016 10:48:35
I think AG means in the League and i agree with everything he posted.


9.) 17 Jul 2016 10:52:24
"common_sense moyes" 😂😂

Anyway, I agree, you can't easily compare players when they haven't played under the same conditions. I do remember another world class midfielder Man Utd signed from Italy for a near record fee - J-S Veron 🤔.

{Ed041's Note - Aquiliani anyone?


10.) 17 Jul 2016 11:09:26
AG I'm not suggesting Ilori and Yesil are good players. But they received poor loans. Ilori got lots of game time in the Portuguese and Spanish leagues where they value technique over brute strength. At Villa who were always going to struggle to stay up, was another dinosaur manager like Sherwood really going to take a risk on a 22 year old loaned in centre back? It was a careless decision by LFC and yet another example if them treating young players careers with discontent.

Yesil if he was struggling after injury should've been kept at the club for specialised rehab training and to play in the u21's instead of fobbed off on another club with no investment in his future.

Wisdom also got sent on poor loans. Which have damaged his career.

I'm surprised at you in particular AG, trying to defend the club on this. We have been disgusting in our disregard of the careers of our employees, and even ex employees if you take the Spearing example. Ilori despite our poor treatment is still being selected by the Portugal national youth sides and the Olympic squad. Yesil is still highly rated in Turkey and Germany. Wisdom still doesn't struggle to get a loan despite 2 years on the bench at relegation candidates. Pleading ignorance doesn't make our club any less of an embarrassment.


11.) 17 Jul 2016 13:49:39
Spot on, MK. Blame the players for not making it at a loan club where the coaches have no idea what they are doing or how to use them.


 

 

09 Jul 2016 07:07:07
Neven Subotic to sign for 6m Euro's sounds like a bargain to me.

KingCarlos

1.) 09 Jul 2016 07:13:07
Maybe before sakho was cleares but don't see it not kyself.


2.) 09 Jul 2016 08:00:13
While I see the sense of just going with 4 CBs, if we have a major injury we're left with Gomez as our only CB on the bench (assuming Illori and Wisdom move on) . I'd be in favour of bringing in Subotic and giving Gomez a chance to back up Clyne at RB and Flanno to cover LB.

{Ed001's Note - surely that is what we need to do with regards to Gomez? Or shall we just not give him a chance by buying 35 centre backs and destroy his career like we all complained Rodgers was doing to attacking midfielders?}


3.) 09 Jul 2016 08:37:03
3 internationals and Gomez as a fourth seems perfect to me for next season.


4.) 09 Jul 2016 08:48:40
I think Gomez should learn like carragher did play as a full back and progress to centre half this way firstly solves our left back problem snd he gains valuable experience. I personally would keep wisdom and ilori rather than buy which we don't need to do as only domestic cups this season.


5.) 09 Jul 2016 09:31:01
@Zimbo f we have a major injury then yea Gonez will be called on, if he's not even going to get a game then, what chance does he have of playing footbal next year?!


6.) 09 Jul 2016 10:51:52
Completely agree. These 4 are enough given the relative lack of games this season.

Ed001, who do we have left at the youth/ reserve level should we have an injury crisis? I'm assuming Ilori leaves.

Thanks

Z.

{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head I can't think who it the stand outs, but that shouldn't matter, buying just in case there might possibly be an injury crisis is pointless. Either use the academy or scrap it.}


7.) 09 Jul 2016 11:29:07
I stand corrected obviously its best to sit on the bench and watch. Lots of experience gained there. 3 disagrees!


8.) 09 Jul 2016 12:41:57
Personally I'd keep wisdom.


9.) 09 Jul 2016 13:00:19
Wisdom is awful mate. Gomez on the other hand. I want him knocking on the door for a starting place this season.
Sacky and Lovren are no Maldini, I think I he's good enough to break through should one of them or Matip fall out of form.


10.) 09 Jul 2016 15:02:02
My point was I'd like to see Gomez given time at FB rather than CB. I think we lack talented cover at FB and Gomez impressed me there, while I think stepping up in the PL at CB might be harder for such a young player. The lad is exceptional and deserves a solid crack, don't get me wrong.


11.) 09 Jul 2016 16:52:26
We have Flanno and Clyne on the right and Moreno and Chilwell coming in on the left or are those not enough cover, Zimbo?


12.) 10 Jul 2016 00:43:27
Look at John stones give a young player a chance and they can take there chance. Why can't Joe Gomez take his chance.


 

 

01 Dec 2015 11:17:19
I very much doubt there will be any transfer ins as we currently stand in jan. I expect Klopp to be buying in the summer of next year where FSG will back him and hopefully he will achieve a CL spot.

KingCarlos

1.) 01 Dec 2015 12:33:19
He said in the interview about no goalkeepers coming in. I know he's not going to say yeah mignolets crap, but I think he means it at the moment.


2.) 01 Dec 2015 12:47:09
He can acheive that this season! We don't need to buy. Flanagan and Sakho are back soon, Henderson and Sturridge just returned. soon we will have a fully fit squad bar Joe Gomez and Danny Ings. let klopp work with that first. We also have many players coming back from loan who klopp would like to have a look at before spending money, Markovic, Ojo, Kent, Wisdom, Ward, Canos etc.


3.) 01 Dec 2015 16:31:03
First time I've thought to myself regarding Klopp "what the . is he on about? "
He said we have plenty of high quality goalkeepers and there is nothing to criticise Migs about since he's been here.
Ok he must have been watching a different game last Thursday then. From my viewpoint he kept hold of the ball for 21 seconds, gave away an indirect freekick which resulted in us letting in the first goal. I would say that is worthy of criticism. We don't have any "high quality goalkeepers".

If he'd said "there is no story I'm not looking for another goal keeper" then fine, that's reasonable and kills the story.

We will never have a decent defence with this keeper.


4.) 01 Dec 2015 16:59:54
Probably trying the arm round the shoulder approach with migs. definitely don't see him as a player who would react well to a public slating. agree with Ron's sentiments for the most but maybe klopp just felt he needed a bit of public support for his confidence.


5.) 01 Dec 2015 17:02:57
Ron maybe he is trying to install confidence into his players, I don't see a problem in that.


6.) 01 Dec 2015 17:14:06
Ever since Klopp's come in people have been predicting what player's he's likely to drop, I think most of us will be forced to eat our words.


7.) 01 Dec 2015 18:51:51
Why dent someone's confidence that's already not 100%?
The chances of us landing a new keeper are very slim so in my mind there's only one way to approach the situation.

Whilst I am no fan of Migs, denting his confidence even more would be disasterous for us, there's a lot a lot of football to be played between now and the end of the season

I'm sure behind closed doors, Klopp has pulled Migs up for his errors and is trying to turn any negatives into positives!


8.) 01 Dec 2015 20:01:37
Just don't see the need to tell everyone how we have plenty of high quality goalkeepers and how Migs is one of the smartest keepers he's ever had.

Makes me worry about his judgement.


9.) 01 Dec 2015 20:33:12
We need a better goal keeper. The teams that win the premier league always have a half decent keeper.
Migs isn't even top 7 in the prem.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained over and over about this. Again, to placate the fans, maybe Klopp is lying or perhaps he will change his mind in the summer - but regardless, January is a time when goalkeeps (as we now call them) are much less likely to move.}


10.) 01 Dec 2015 22:52:00
The man is a master of man management. Absolute perfect man for the role, the way he looks at things in football are so outside the narrow minded, short tempered idiotic lenses of many english fans, coaches and the press.

His quote about how the english love transfers but he prefers training. that's so true you might as well get a tapestry of it.

All these lads (even mignolet) have all made it to the top league one way or another. They can't be that bad. Put them in just one division lower and they will look world class.

So despite what us know-it-all fans say, these lads have ability. Klopp sees them in training, he knows what they can do. If you can't make subtle tweaks to a players game, and get them to stop making mistakes, you are a bad coach, eg rodgers. He clearly was incapable of improving a lot of these players. Klopp is. His track record is one of taking nobodies to the top of the game.

As awful as players like mignolet and skrtel are in my opinion, i'll follow the man to the end with his judgement on players. He has been there and done it, and knows way more than we do.


11.) 02 Dec 2015 01:28:32
Ron, what do you expect him to say vis a vis Mingo? Call him names and stupidly bench him indefinitely before bringing him back like you know who did? Nonsense! He knows he needs Mingo to be on top of his game because like it or not, he's all we have till the summer when Klopp can reevaluate the situation. Chill out, men. The man knows best so let him work.


12.) 02 Dec 2015 04:38:07
Or maybe, a Manager/Coach that has knowledge and an eye for tallent, really does Migs is talented and smart? And maybe, he has identified faults (like holding the ball too long) and knows he can rectify it. Maybe, this Manager/Coach knows that he can actually coach and manage players, so he can actually improve and get the best out of them.


13.) 02 Dec 2015 10:59:00
Ohio, I mentioned in my post what I expected him to say.
- "there's no story and I'm not looking to sign a new keeper"

Kills the story stone dead without blowing smoke up Mig's hole and making up things like "we have plenty of high quality keepers"
Absolute nonsense and worrying.


14.) 02 Dec 2015 12:04:16
I've been a massive critic of Migs so imagine my surprise to hear that he's kept more clean sheets in 2015 than any other PL keeper. I may have to eat my own words soon 😖.

United did pay a hefty fee for him, certainly raised my eye brows at the time. Can understand why we never got involved at that price. Could work out to be a bargain but that's the risk with football players.

Swansea will be tough, Arsenal will be tough and Spurs I hope will score 3 or 4 past them. Saints and Palace may be no mark games with 6 points on offer for United. let's see how they fair against Swansea which should be a tough match for them first off.
